3 The 15th annual continuing education program is organized by the American Board of Rehabilitation Psychology and the Division of Rehabilitation Psychology of the American Psychological Association. The American Board of Rehabilitation Psychology (ABRP) was established in 1995 and became fully affiliated with the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) in It was established to conduct examinations leading to board certification in Rehabilitation Psychology. The Division of Rehabilitation Psychology was established in 1956, with the purpose of uniting all members of the American Psychological Association with interests in the rehabilitation and prevention of disability and chronic illness. Specific program content was developed by the program committee for the 2013 Rehabilitation Conference in the areas of: translational research methods; outcomes measurement; evidenced-based practice; diversification of clinical practice; training and supervision; professional development; and legal and ethical issues. By the conclusion of this program, participants will: 1. Identify current trends and learn new skills in rehabilitation psychology practice; 2. Discuss recent clinical research findings and their potential impact on service delivery; 3. Describe the key elements of ABPP/ABRP eligibility, the practice sample submission and review, the oral examination process, and characteristics of effective mentoring; 4. Discuss key issues for training in Rehabilitation Psychology; 5. Understand fundamental issues in ethics, cultural diversity, and evidence-based practice as applied to rehabilitation psychology. Target Audience: This conference is designed for psychologists in practice and/or academic settings who focus on rehabilitation with individuals having chronic diseases, impairments and / or physical and cognitive disabilities as well as for trainees (students, interns, and postdoctoral fellows) with interests in rehabilitation psychology. Program content will be directed at both intermediate and advanced skill levels.
